Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA will host its annual Civil War Seminar from September 28-30, 2012, providing an opportunity for scholars to present and debate research on the military, political, social, and other aspects of one of the defining conflicts of American history. In honor of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the theme of this year’s seminar will be the battles, campaigns, and other events and personalities of 1862. Featured speakers include Dr. Brooks Simpson of Arizona State University and Dr. Steven Woodworth of Texas Christian University.
The deadline for proposals is June 1, 2012. While proposals for complete panels (three presenters and a chair) are preferred, individual proposals are welcome. Proposals should include a title and an abstract of 250-300 words for the papers and short curriculum vitae of the participants. Panel submissions should have an overall title and a description of the theme of the session.
